I completely agree. Washing yeast is a lot of effort. I rack off the beer, add back a quart of water and then split into pint mason jars, and store in the fridge. If you use it within a month, pour off the settled liquid and pitch the slurry straight into the new wort. After a month I make a starter to make sure everything is OK with the yeast.
